18,400 RPM and 900HP from a 3L V10 engine ...and not a turbo in sight on this McLaren MP4/15.

At today's mainstream levels of technology, 900HP V-10 NA is not a cakewalk from an engine with a 3L capacity, and then when you throw 18,400 RPM into the mix but still demand drivability it becomes even more difficult yet this is exactly what Mercedes were doing with their Formula 1 technology way back in the year 2000.

When most people outside of Europe think of diesel performance, Cummins, Chev, or Ford probably come to mind. As this week's Tuned In podcast guest tells us, however, there's a lot more to the performance diesel world than the big 6BTs and 6.0 Powerstrokes.

What considerations go into taking a 150HP engine and making it produce 600HP with huge cylinder pressures, reliably?

When you want to double, triple or even octuple an engines output, at some stage you’re going to find the limitations of your factory block and head castings either in dramatic fashion or via constant repairs and rebuilds for ‘minor’ issues. In professional motorsport, either outcome is unacceptable.

An F20 powered 960HP Honda S2000 work whip/drag car. This man is living the dream.

At the latest TX2K we caught up with Stuart Leiby of T1 Race to talk about his excellently presented, Nyan Cat approved F20 Powered Honda S2000 drag car, that he also drives to work a few days a week.

The car runs a ‘beefed up’ Honda F20 that had a casual 120,000 miles on the block before modification. The block has Golden Eagle Mfg sleeves to ensure i...

Drivetrain systems are getting more and more complex, and that makes modifying them increasingly difficult. Thankfully, there are people out there like this week's Tuned In podcast guest, Jake Hershorin of Motiv Motorsport, poking and prodding in order to gain control and unleash all that potential power hidden within motors like BMW's B58, as used in the A90 Toyota Supra.

Forged pistons are better than cast in the aftermarket performance world, but why?

Using JE Ultra Series pistons for the example with Jeremy at The Sema Show we dive into how forged pistons hold up better to knock/detonation, can handle more boost pressure/load and heat as well as having greater tensile strength. When it comes to the JE Ultra Series line these forged pistons also have a ceramic coating that helps keep the heat where...
